Autologic Diagnostics, a worldwide provider of an aftermarket automotive diagnostics solution, announced today the formation of a new sales force that includes the appointment of several new sales professionals as well as the promotion of other current employees. Each sales professional is strategically based in a different region of the country to best serve the needs of Autologic’s growing client base.
The new sales team, all of whom will serve as regional sales managers in newly these created positions for the company, includes Michael Kevin Barrett, Donald Landrum, Ty Snow, Eric Edberg and Bryan Gabbert. Barrett, Landrum and Snow join Autologic effective immediately, while Edberg and Gabbert, current Autologic employees, were promoted from their roles as sales representatives. Each will manage a sales force of independent sales representatives and distributors in their respective regions.
